Entertainment at The Cosmopolitan
Part of The Cosmopolitan’s appeal is that it doesn’t sport the most shows on the Strip, the biggest retail space or an abundance of arcade games. Rather, the creators of the resort want people to think of the property as a place where they can relax, catch up with colleagues and friends, and enjoy a cocktail. In all honesty, there isn’t a lot of in-your-face amusement at The Cosmopolitan the way there is at other Las Vegas hotels. Nonetheless, there are a few things worth noting when it comes to entertainment.
There are a handful of boutiques in The Cosmopolitan’s retail area, which is located on the second floor. They range from avant-garde fashion to custom footwear. AllSaints sells vintage-inspired clothing, Beckley offers top-of-the-line women’s wear and DNA2050 specializes in denim while other shops specialize in accessories such as sneakers, eyeglasses and cosmetics. STITCHED is more of a lifestyle destination than a clothing store, offering men custom-fit clothing and accessories from a shop that also offers its guests leisure activities such as billiards.

The Cosmopolitan has made a commitment to the arts by supporting a non-profit organization dedicated to producing ambitious public art projects. It also has an artist-in-residence program. But visitors to the resort will be able to actually experience the resort’s art program on the property through other way.
There are six Art-o-mat machines located throughout The Cosmopolitan, each of which dispenses a variety of original artwork. The machines are made from cigarette vending machines, and each piece of art is boxed and wrapped in cellophane. The Cosmopolitan is the first Las Vegas hotel to feature Art-o-mat items.
Four artists have decorated the parking garage of The Cosmopolitan. Check out the graphic art located near the elevators.
Finally, stop by the P3 Studio, located on the third floor. This art gallery features new artists every three months.
Though there is no resident musician or performer at The Cosmopolitan, the resort features several smaller, live performances throughout the property, primarily on the casino floor and in some of the bars and lounges. Check out the Bond and Book & Sport for frequent shows.
